Mass Protest Looms as Northern Group Demands Action on Abduction, Conversation of 9 Kano Children

The Coalition of Northern Groups has expressed their dismay over the reported incident of abduction and alleged forceful conversion to Christianity nine Kano Muslim children.

In a statement on Monday, the coalition’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Sulaiman, said the entire Northern part of the country is saddened that, “days after the discovery of this heinous crime, no federal, state or local government, cultural, traditional, or religious group, NGO, or international organization has spoken on the matter.”

The group, therefore, gave the federal and state governments an ultimatum to do the needful or face a massive protest, “to press for justice for these innocent children and others suffering or likely to suffer similar fates”.
